The invitational exhibition features more than 100 framed paintings and drawings displayed and available for purchase—each no larger than 12 inches in height or width (excluding frame). More than 50 Maritime Gallery artists will be featured in the exhibition including Del-Bourree Bach, Patrick Donovan, Cooper Hart, Neal Hughes, Leonard Mizerek and Cean Youngs.

“Maritime Miniatures is one of our most popular shows,” said Jeanne Potter, director of the Maritime Gallery. “Each painting is truly a small masterpiece created by some of the most respected maritime artists working today. Reasonably priced and beautifully framed, these paintings are perfect for holiday gift giving and also give collectors the chance to own original works by their favorite artists at affordable prices.”
